    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\MYWAY <= entire folder

    Then after booting into normal mode update Windows and IE.

    Pieter,

    I tried your directions and the problem seems to be gone.

    I had never imagined that I will be able to resolve this so soon.

    You and your team are providing a fantastic valuable service to the computing world.

    thanks again....with a capital T.

    Rakesh


    PS: how can I send a personal email to you ....which does not get posted

    Hi Rockychandra,

    I am afraid it will be back pretty soon, but I had to clean out all the extra clutter, so we can attack the real problem when it comes back.

    You can contact me through the links in my profile: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/member.php?u=584

    Regards,

    Pieter
